A versatile kitchen staple with fabulous whole wheat flavor, Hard Red is the king of American wheats and prized for its culinary performance. It is the most widely grown wheat in the U.S. by a significant margin. With bran and germ left intact, we stone-mill our Hard Red berries to let the complex, bittersweet flavors shine through. The flour can be used in nearly any cooking situation, but is particularly good in wholesome artisanal breads.
All wheats contain gluten, but to varying degrees. High-gluten strains are classified as “hard”, while those with less gluten are known as “soft”. Hard wheats, then, are better suited for making strong doughs- think bread or pizza dough, anything where you need that all-important chew factor. Soft wheats, on the other hand, are great for baked goods that are best kept tender and flaky, such as pie crust, biscuits, or scones.
